Today's arnis (9 Aug 2015): We started with a review of subligs from balintawak and did them classically as well as with several variations and feeding strikes randomly to apply the subligs on contact. We also reviewed a simple tokas for comparison, as well as the Professor's move that looks like a sublig from below (central to the first RvR tapi-tapi sequence I learned). From there we moved on to empty hands and did the empty-hand "tapi-tapi" drill (aka the 1-2 drill, or 3-2-3 count, or empty-hand sumbrada, or bkfist/back-smash/hook-punch, or...), again with variations and contact-counters and locks on (any) contact. Then we worked on single-stick random "sumbrada" free-flows; i.e. give and take with block-check-strikes. We did an isolated "feint-the-attack" move from last week's training with the Burton Richardson, followed by the concept drill in which you simply attack their hand if they attack yours, thereby not being there and turning the tables effortlessly. The idea behind the latter is that it's better to not be there than to block!
